Lucas 'Tattoos' Thobela to Retain Title
MONTREAL - With just the right combination of speed and power, Eric Lucas defeated Dingaan Thobela on Friday, November 30 at the Montreal Molson Center to retain the WBC super-middleweight title.
Using his superior size, reach, and strength, Lucas controlled virtually every facet of the fight. In the eighth round, Lucas landed a crushing left on Thobela's chin that momentarily stunned the smaller fighter. Sensing victory, the Quebec native unleashed a flurry of punches to Thobela's head before the referee mercifully stopped the fight. A Montreal crowd 13,000 strong went wild cheering their hometown hero's successful title defense.
Golden Palace Online Casino sponsored Eric Lucas as well as under-card champion Dale Brown, who defeated Rick Roufus by TKO. Both men sported the words 'GoldenPalace.com' prominently on their backs as a Henna tattoo - both were victorious. The Internet gaming heavyweight was also the main sponsor of the event, and they continue to make a name for themselves in and around the boxing community. They have already been associated with Roy Jones Jr., Michael Grant, and Roberto Duran.
Golden Palace seems to have a knack for picking winners, sponsoring Bernard 'The Executioner' Hopkins' unification of the WBA, IBF, and WBC belts in his bout against Felix Trinidad this past September. The popular gaming site changed the face of marketing when they tattooed Hopkins' back with their Net address GoldenPalace.com. Marketing executives agreed this was one of the most original advertising campaigns they had ever seen, and the online casino obviously chooses their fighters well. They are three for three in tattooing winners. This comes as no real surprise however, as their slogan 'Home of the Biggest Payouts' proves, they have been associated with winners for years.
